Have you ever heard of the endocannabinoid system? It’s very possible that you haven’t as it’s not considered common knowledge. It’s easy to take what other people say about CBD and just assume that it works but it will work even better if we truly understand why it’s so beneficial to use it. For example, when you meditate, they say “start meditation with good intent”. As soon as you know what the endocannabinoid system is capable of, you can develop the right intention of what you want it to do for you!
What exactly is the Endocannabinoid System?
The endocannabinoid system is a network in your body that does a number of amazing things. You have a CB1 receptor and a CB2 receptor and these are found all over your body. Whenever you use cannabis, these receptors are triggered and everything begins firing. Today, with all the hormones in our food and soil and such, our bodies are thrown out of balance. When you take CBD, it starts hitting these receptors in the endocannabinoid system. The CB1 and CB2 receptors that have been lying dormant for so long, start running and functioning properly. This is why it helps get your body right back into its natural balance.
The actual purpose of the endocannabinoid system is to provide homeostasis. Now that seems like a mouthful, but what it does is it simply brings balance to the body. The cannabinoids bind to the receptors (CB1 and CB2) and promote well-being within your body. Your body works in conjunction with cannabinoids, so it’s as if we were meant to have this plant just as much as our we need vitamins and minerals. With our civilization being away from it for so long, so many of us are deficient in it. It’s part of the reason many are dealing with pain and other issues they are having right now.
How do we Take Care of the Endocannabinoid System?
One of the best treatments for your endocannabinoid system is taking CBD on a daily basis. Every body type requires a different dose. Each person may have a different deficiency in their body so some will require more CBD than others. Everyone has an endocannabinoid system and it should be given attention just like every other aspect of the human body.
